BEng (Hons) in Electronic and Communication Engineering

The field of Electronic and Communication Engineering is one that currently evolves at an extremely fast rate. The market needs for better, faster and more efficient technologies provide the impetus necessary to push the boundaries of electronic and communication engineering. New and innovative products are released on the market every day and technologies developed in the field today become redundant and outdated within two to three years. Given the nature of the field, the major challenge for an educational institution is to keep the knowledge imparted to students in the field relevant and adequate. The objective of this engineering course is to ensure graduates have a comprehensive engineering education combined with specialist knowledge of electronics and communication engineering. The students are provided with ample opportunities throughout the 4 year course to develop their theoretical, analytical, design and practical problem-solving aptitudes necessary towards engineering practice. Innovation, scientific rigour, ethical attitude and a sense of purpose for the benefit of society form the core values associated with the delivery of the programme. The Department aims to achieve academic excellence by providing education such that graduates can assume key roles in engineering practice and applied research in industry, in the private sector and in public service. The programme has been designed to meet the competency standards prescribed by engineering bodies forming part of the Washington Accord for recognition of qualifications and international mobility of engineers. The first three years of the programme cover the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering. The final year allows students to focus in one of the proposed areas of specialisation in Communication Engineering.
